2:01 am
11:00 p.m. in hawaii. we will have the projections of hurricane lane. we start with the white house. the white house struggles to contain the fallout from the michael cohen guilty plea. president trump is turning to personal attacks. cohen implicated trump for coordinating hush payments to a porn star to sway an election. yesterday with an interview with fox news, the president tried to minimize cohen's role in life and in business. >> he was one of many lawyers for me. they say the lawyer and they like to say the fixer. i don't know where that term came from. i don't know if he was a fixer. he has been a lawyer for me. he did not do big deals. small deals. not somebody with me that much. somebody who said i did not live without him. i understood michael cohen very well. he turned out not to be a very good lawyer. >> that's what the president says now about the man who once
2:02 am
said he would take a bullet for mr. trump. >> i'll do anything to protect mr. trump. i'm obviously very loyal and dedicated to mr. trump. >> now the white house is short on answers as the contradictions mount here. the president himself seems unfazed. even 1:10 a.m. tweeting no collusion. we have kaitlan collins with more. >> reporter: christine and dave, the president is now facing enormous political and legal pressure. in the middle of that, he is trying to change his story of the payments michael cohen made to the two women who allege they had an affair with trump. what he knew and when. the president saying with fox news he did not know about the payments until later on. he did not specify a date. >> did you know about the payments? >> later on i knew. later on. you have to understand, what he did and they were not taken from campaign finance. that's a much bigger thing. they did not come out of the campaign.
2:03 am
they came from me. >> reporter: that contradicts the tape released by michael cohen last month which discusses how to make a payment to one of the women before the payment was made. >> when it comes to the financing. >> what financing? >> payment. >> pay with cash? >> no, no, no. i got it. >> reporter: as these questions come, the white house is struggling to mount defense here. >> the president found out about the payments that michael cohen made later on. he is on tape discussing how to make one of the payments with michael cohen. so before the payment was made. how do you explain that? >> once again, i commented on this extensively. what i can tell you about this is that the president did nothing wrong. there are no charges against him. there is no collusion. >> you can stand here and say the president has never lied to the american people? >> that is a ridiculous accusation. >> reporter: we will see playing out that michael cohen will
2:04 am
paint him as a liar and not a credible figure in the situation. that is likely to raise more questions why the president surrounded himself with michael cohen in the first place. dave and christine. >> kaitlan collins, thank you. one of the jurors in the paul manafort trial says a lone holdout prevented them from convicting on all 18 counts. paula duncan tells fox news jurors agreed to disregard the testimony of the former right hand man rick gates because he took a plea deal. they relied on documents to reach eight guilty verdicts. >> when the president was asked about a pardon for manafort, he side-stepped the question. >> i have great respect for what he has done and gone through. he worked for ronald reagan for years. he worked for bob dole. his firm worked for mccain. many, many people and many, many years.
2:05 am
what he did, some of the charges they threw against him, every consultant and lobbyist in washington does. >> the new york times" reports the president and rudy giuliani have discussed the potential political repercussions of pardoning manafort. giuliani says the president is not considering it. john bolton is meeting with his russian counterpart this morning in geneva. we have cnn's fred pleitgen in moscow with the latest. fred, good morning. we assume election interference at the top of the show, but one would hope? >> reporter: i think we are assuming correctly. not sure if it is on top of the agenda, but john bolton said it will be on the agenda as far as the american side. we have asked the russian side as well. they have been less specific about the topics discussed or this topic in particular. they are saying irritants in the relationship with russia and the
2:06 am
u.s. on the agenda. one thing the russians want to speak about is not just election meddling, they probably don't want to speak about that, but sanctions relief for russia. not too long ago, president trump said he would be willing to discuss sanctions for russia if russia would help in syria and ukraine. syria, dave, is one of the major issues on the agenda. something that john bolton has been building up to as he has been on the trip in the middle east. he has said recently he believes russia is somewhat stuck in syria and is looking for help from the u.s. politically, but also reconstruction. that is a tall task in syria. a lot of destruction. russians are saying, wait. we are not stuck at all in syria. they say if u.s. works with russia, it is on russia's terms. >> fred, live in moscow, thank you.

"time magazine" has their latest with the cover unveiled "in deep." to you, david, in the last 36 hours or so, what is it that poses the biggest threat to the presidency? political or legal? >> well, it is a little bit of both because it certainly appears that the president might well have been indicted for the campaign related issue along with mr. cohen had it not been for the fact he is president of the united states and the justs advertise department is -- and the justice department is working under the assumption you cannot indict a sitting president. it raises the question, had the president lost to hillary clinton and was a private citizen, would he face the same indictment that his lawyer did? this has put the white house in the impossible position that you
2:37 am
saw in sarah sanders repetition 10 or 11 times as i read through the transcript the president has done nothing wrong. there were no charges pressed against the president. she was hoping by continuing to repeat it, she was actually answering the question. it is obvious from the president's own answers that he misled people on what he knew and when he knew it. >> numerous times. >> we can show you that. we put the numbers together. he did nothing wrong. seven times. no charges. six. no collusion. three. you can tell there were theme songs that would be sung and were and that's her job. the president just a few hours ago tweeting no collusion. rigged russian witch hunt. we are still facing the midterms and the russians are still actively involved in disrupting the political process.

2:39 am
some obviously some russian diplomats, mostly spies under diplomatic cover, who were thrown out of the country. the price they have paid is not extraordinarily high. if you are vladimir putin and you think of the 2018 election as a place to just experiment with techniques you might use for 2020, they don't really need to do a huge amount between now and two months from now. >> the question is are we doing enough to protect our elections in these midterms. i want to ask quickly about north korea. the president spoke with japan prime minister shinzo abe yesterday. the reports that north korea firing up and perhaps increasing the nuclear capabilities. what do you make of the reports from north korea and the symbolic gestures they made to the united states? where are we on that? >> well, here is where we are. we wrote about this a week ago. you may have seen the
2:40 am
international atomic agency came to conclusions in the report a day ago. the north koreans have suspended nuclear and missile tests. that is the most important because we don't think they perfected the ability to reach the united states yet. that has gone on for ruoughly 20 days. that is significant. they stopped dismantling the site they claimed they would dismantle. the iaea report and it is obvious from satellite photographs, they are continuing to produce uranium and plutonium and working on all of the major nuclear projects. they have given the united states a few small symbolic steps, but all the big things they need to do to expand the arsenal are still under way. although the president declared right after singapore we were no longer under nuclear threat from north korea. >> long way to go there.
